They were winning the "space race" until the Apollo missions, and then it seems like they lost interest since they would have been second to land men on the moon.

...I was a little surprised by what I saw. They completed the moon walk, went back in the LM and for some reason didn't eject their backpacks at that point, but instead they pressurized the spacecraft. Then they performed some tasks, and then depressurised the craft and tossed out their backpacks, and had to repressurize again.
I'm not sure why they didn't just toss out the backpacks before they repressurized the first time...
